The ability to take various database objects and store them in different locations, sometimes referred to as table spaces, will probably be done in the future. There was a substantial group not all that long ago that was organizing to complete the implementation. > or is it the judgement of the hackers community that a monsterous raid-10 > array offers comparable performance? Often performs well enough... But a raid-10 for data, a stripe for indexes, and a mirror for WAL will offer better performance :)
